Doors Open Milwaukee is a city-wide celebration of architecture and design and one of ACM’s favorite collaborations each year.
We commission composers to write music inspired by several of the spaces and then place musicians in the spaces to perform the pieces every fifteen minutes for self-guided tours.
This year we were in three fabulous buildings: Colby Abbot, Clock Shadow and Two Fifty. The music is by Asta Hyvärinen, Cristina Spinei and Robert Laidlow. Watch a video below!
Colby Abbot: Peter Thomas – cello and Benjamin Adler – clarinet
Clock Shadow: Alicia Storin – cello and Elizabeth Warne – violin
Two Fifty: Laura McLaughlin – clarinet and Kristian Ring – cello
